1 Food Prep

Season one side of all proteins with your favorite rub. We’re using salt, pepper and garlic. 

While the seasoning sets, light up your grill.

The fire should be set and ready now.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Charcoal, 2–3 chimneys

Method: Two-Zone Method

3 The Cook

  • Apply shrimp, sausage and veggies indirect to the fire for a slower cooking process. Rotate as needed to develop color and doneness until they reach a safe temperature. 

  • Drop the fajita and chicken thighs on to direct heat.  

  • Flip fajita and chicken every two minutes encourage even cooking and doneness until they reach food safe temperature. 

  • Plate and serve all ingredients on a single, family-style platter. 

  • Serve alongside your favorite sides like rice, beans, guacamole, salsas and tortillas.
